Pat Bruen was a 20-year veteran in Sales at Thomson Reuters, one of the world’s leading and most trusted software solutions providers. As he approached early retirement, Pat was resolute about wanting to continue upward with his career path with a fresh challenge. Passionate about the tax and accounting industry, he began researching different franchise options. 

Payroll Vault has been a longtime client of Thomson Reuters and Pat, over the years, came to know Sean Manning, CEO/Founder. From his experience within the industry, Pat witnessed the growing demand for small business payroll services and reached out to learn more about Payroll Vault franchise opportunity. 

As conversations came to fruition, it became clear that Payroll Vault was the opportunity that best fit his immediate and long-term career goals. It was time to move forward!


Pat’s goals for the upcoming year are to hone in on increasing his payroll presence in his local community, continue building a strong customer base, and helping his local business community thrive. 

In his down time, he enjoys spending time with my family – 3 children and 14 beautiful grandchildren. Together they hike and appreciate quality meals together.
